Builders:

Some more photos from Corvair College #37 in Chino California. This is our 17th year of Colleges, hundreds of people have attended them, learned a lot had fun and made friends. All types of people have found the Colleges the place they feel most at home in aviation. If you are yet to find your own place in aviation, Consider the Corvair movement, a place where the traditional EAA values of learn build and fly are still practiced at every event.
